The red handspun and kettle-dyed merino is beautiful to look at and is very soft so it somewhat offsets the natural wool from Kenya. These two yarns are great together and make for a really dense and protective cap. The band on the inside of the cap is there to make it comfortable for the sensitive skin of the forehead and ears. It's a natural white Italian cashmere coupled with a Peruvian alpaca tweed in three of its natural colors. What an amazing cap this turned out to be - it's a showstopper on and will last for a long long time.

Purple Baby Alpaca Nekker
Nekkers are the most amazing winter wear imaginable. Once you get used to having your neck warm it's almost impossible to leave it bare in the winter. Jed and I wear our Nekkers constantly. This Nekker is a combination of Peruvian baby alpaca in purple, handpainted Uruguayan merino and a strand of natural Peruvian alpaca tweed. It's trimmed in the baby alpaca for an extra treat up around the top of the neck.

Golden Merino - Natural Alpaca
I saw this golden hand-dyed merino in a favorite yarn shop in San Rafael and it jumped out into my arms. Rich colors are complimented by a strand of a Peruvian alpaca tweed in three of its natural colors - I used that same tweed to trim the cap with. It's thick and warm and feels amazing on. Plenty of room for anybody's head but it's not loose.

Pussy Caps and Nekkers are not returnable because they come in contact with hair and skin that have the potential to deposit oils, pathogens and/or bugs onto the absorptive fibers of the yarns. This would be similar to the no returns policy on underwear. These are one of a kind specialty articles of clothing that come to you with a guarantee that they are brand new and have never been worn. That assurance of cleanliness cannot be maintained if caps are returned.
Pure Peruvian Alpaca
Alpaca is hard to beat on just about any level you wish to define it. Here I've taken a few strands of Peruvian alpaca in their natural colors and created this very simple Four Corners Pussy Cap. It's trimmed in more black alpaca. It has a nice drape and a wonderful softness that's typical of this superfine grade of alpaca yarn. Easy fit for just about anybody's head.

Italian and Peruvian Baby Alpaca
The white yarn in this Four Corners Pussy Cap is a blend of baby alpaca and silk from Italy. It is amazingly soft and smooth and is a perfect companion for the strand of Peruvian alpaca tweed in white, tan and brown. The cap is trimmed in the baby alpaca/silk yarn. The fit is snug but not tight so it'll stay on nicely no matter what you're doing. Thick, warm, soft and beautiful on. It's a beauty.

Greens, Yellows and Whites
Believe it or not, four amazing yarns have gone into this beauty. A white Italian yarn that's a blend of baby alpaca and silk. A thin yellow strand of vintage wool, probably also from Italy based on the cone it was on when I bought it. A strand of handpainted merino and silk from Montana that's giving us all those wonderful shades of green. And finally the deep green alpaca boucle` yarn in the band that's also from Italy. This is a great big thick Pussy Cap with a massive turned up band that makes it as though you had two caps on instead of one. It fits beautifully, it's crazy warm and soft and it's going to last you a long long time.

Lavender Alpaca Boucle Nekker
From Italy we have this beautiful lavender alpaca boucle` yarn that has a little bit of merino in it for strength. The texture that results from these boucle` yarns is really something and because of the skilled spinning the alpaca is able to show off its softness. In alternating rows is a handspun, handpainted merino yarn from South America that is equally as soft and beautiful. Both of these yarns are the right softness for wearing next to the delicate skin of the neck and they'll give you lots of years of warmth and durability.

Indian Angora Fur with Peruvian Alpaca
Spun in a small town in northern India, the coral and red angora fur yarns are as rare as they are beautiful. This is the last of my stash and it doesn't appear that I can get anymore. I coupled it here with a Peruvian alpaca tweed for a soft and luscious fabric that will keep you warm and protected. Roomy classic beanie cap style for anybody's head. 120.00 + 6.00 shipping
Cashmere Merino and Silk Nekker
Four strands of yarn were crocheted together here for an amazingly soft and beautifully colored Nekker that will thrill you from the moment you first feel it in your hands and around your neck. These are small strands of yarn that bring together cashmere, ultrafine merino and silk. Yum.

Merino and Alpaca Nekker in Black and Pale Coral
There's a nice simplicity to this Nekker that at first glance seems like just black and coral. But a closer look will reveal the subtleties in the colors as you can see in the detail shot. The yarns are all from Peru` and are alpaca and merino. Very soft and very durable - you'll be wearing this one for a long time.

Alpaca, Silk and Merino Nekker
The Peruvian alpaca is in its natural black while the silk/merino blend is in a pallet of colors that include magentas, golds and blues. It shimmers in the light and is soft and warm. A real beauty as the colors spiral up the Nekker and give it a different look from every angle.

Alpaca, Merino and Silk in Greens
If you like the greens of underwater fish and coral then you might wanna consider this beautiful Nekker. I have joined a strand of Peruvian alpaca tweed with a strand of handpainted merino/silk and a thin strand of handpainted ultrafine merino. Stunning partners in this fabric that constantly modulates through a panoply of greens and subtle greys and browns. It's thick and super soft and perfect for the sensitive skin of your neck.
